We reported some weeks back that Charlie Mulgrew had indeed been offered a new deal with Celtic but on reduced terms.
Many fans seen this as a formality, thinking Charlie would jump at the chance to extend his stay at the club. Officials at the club may have thought the same and now the FREE AGENT is rightly looking at his options.
This reminds me of the Jackie McNamara contract situation when they held off so long to offer the player a new deal, taking it for granted he would stay at the club and not treating it as a priority. By the time Celtic made a fair offer to Jackie he was half way down to England to sign for Glen Hoddle’s Wolves.
With the news that Sheffield Wednesday might be about to offer the utility man a fantastic deal to sign for them on a two-year-deal, Celtic and Peter Lawwell may have misread the situation just like he did with Jackie Mac all those years ago.
Charlie was brought through the Celtic youth system before being moved on by Gordon Strachan after a pre-season bust up. The player moved down south only to end up at Aberdeen where he proved his worth and earned a deal with Celtic to bring him home.
The Scottish international could be set to leave for a second time, will Celtic up their current terms or are they resigned to the player moving on?
